Sunday, Bloody Sunday: The Baton Rouge Massacre

sadYesterday started out as another typical American Sunday Morning.

Some of us went to church, some of us had to work, some of us  went to the grocery store, in preparation for Sunday Dinner with our families.

Calvin Eugene Long mercilessly ended the lives of three Baton Rouge Policemen.

Calling himself Cosma Ausar Setepenra, the 29-year old Former U.S. Marine and Nation of Islam Member posted racist Youtube Video profanity-laden rants, promoting Black Liberation Ideology.

It has also been reported that he was a member of a Sovereign Citizen Group.

In response to the heinous attack, Steve Loomis, the President of the Cleveland Police Patrolmen’s Association, said,

The president of the Untied States validated a false narrative and the nonsense that Black Lives Matter and the Media are pressing out there to the public — He validated with his very divisive statements And now we see an escalation.

This has got to end.

We need some leadership in this country to come forward and put an end to this.

I don’t care if it’s clergy or who it is but somebody has to step up and put an end to this. It’s false narrative and people politicizing the false narrative that we have a President of the United States and the governor of Minnesota making a statement less than one day after the police involved shootings.

Those police involved shootings are what absolutely has triggered in rash of senseless murders of law enforcement officers across the country. It is reprehensible.

The president has blood on his hands and it will not be able to come washed off…

How the hell did we ever become the bad guys in this country? I can not imagine how we got here. It is the irresponsible reporting of the media and irresponsible statements from people who are credible – like the president, like celebrities.

Later yesterday afternoon, Former Community Organizer, Former Member of Trinity United Church of Christ, a Black Liberation Theology Church, and Current President of the United States of America, Barack Hussein Obama, addressed the nation, speaking these words…

“I condemn, in the strongest sense of the word, the attack on law enforcement in Baton Rouge.  For the second time in two weeks, police officers who put their lives on the line for ours every day were doing their job when they were killed in a cowardly and reprehensible assault.  These are attacks on public servants, on the rule of law, and on civilized society, and they have to stop.  “I’ve offered my full support, and the full support of the federal government, to Governor Edwards, Mayor Holden, the Sheriff’s Office, and the Baton Rouge Police Department.  And make no mistake – justice will be done.

“We may not yet know the motives for this attack, but I want to be clear:  there is no justification for violence against law enforcement.  None.  These attacks are the work of cowards who speak for no one.  They right no wrongs.  They advance no causes.  The officers in Baton Rouge; the officers in Dallas – they were our fellow Americans, part of our community, part of our country, with people who loved and needed them, and who need us now – all of us – to be at our best.

“Today, on the Lord’s day, all of us stand united in prayer with the people of Baton Rouge, with the police officers who’ve been wounded, and with the grieving families of the fallen.  May God bless them all.”

Where has THIS Barack Hussein Obama been?

Ever since Obama got into office, all I have heard from him is the Rhetoric of Racial Division and Class Warfare.

It reminded me of all the historical conflicts which I used to read about, during the course in college which I took, titled “The Rhetoric of Social Protest“.

Karl Marx knew long ago that all you needed to do to touch the heart of the common man was to convince him of a shared struggle.

Vladimir Lenin took this a step further, by using the concept of a shared struggle to convince the Bolsheviks to help him overthrow the Czar of Russia and murder him and his family during the Russian Revolution.

Forgive me for stating the obvious, but fiery rhetoric spoken by a national leader and his “New Bolsheviks” have consequences.

President Barack Hussein Obama is as responsible for what has happened in Ferguson, New York, Baltimore, and is happening in cities across America,  as any thug wannabe in those cities.

However, he is not alone in his responsibility.

Also responsible are the black political leaders, who make their living and get their 15 minutes of fame by exacerbating racially-divided situations. Their silence speaks volumes.

And, if “Black Lives Matter”, why didn’t the life of Officer Montrell Jackson?

Foxnews.com reports that

Just days before he was shot and killed Sunday morning, a Baton Rouge police officer posted an emotional Facebook message saying he was “physically and emotionally” tired and expressing how difficult it was to be both a police officer and a black man, a friend said Sunday.”I swear to God I love this city but I wonder if this city loves me,” Montrell Jackson wrote.

He said while in uniform he gets nasty looks and out of uniform some consider him a threat.

“I’ve experienced so much in my short life and these last 3 days have tested me to the core,” the posting read.

The message was posted July 8, just three days after a black man was shot and killed by police in Baton Rouge. That shooting was the beginning of an extremely tense week in the country’s fraught history of race relations. Another black man was shot and killed by police the next day in Minnesota, with his girlfriend livestreaming the aftermath on Facebook. Then a black gunman opened fire during a protest against the police shootings in Dallas, killing five police officers.

Jackson does not specifically refer to those events but the posting appears to be a reaction to them.

Erika Green told The Associated Press Sunday that she is friends with the family of Jackson, one of three Baton Rouge law enforcement officers who were killed Sunday morning. She said she saw the message on his Facebook page.

In the message, Jackson says he is physically and emotionally tired.

“These are trying times. Please don’t let hate infect your heart,” Jackson wrote.

A screenshot of the image has been widely circulating on the internet but is no longer on Jackson’s Facebook page.

State Rep. Ted James, who confirmed to the AP that Jackson was killed Sunday, said he had a 4-month-old child.

Shepard Smith, the Liberal News Anchor at Fox News lambasted Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal for using the phrase “All Lives Matter” m in responding to the slaughter of Baton Rouge’s Finest. According to Smith, saying that all lives matter is “derogatory” and “racist”.

When Shepard Smith was living in Mississippi, attending Old Miss and, later, working as a News Anchor for a television station in Tupelo, he must have never attended church.

Both he and these “community organizers/activists” (past and present), could learn much from the following classic children’s hymn, which states,

Jesus loves the little children
All the children of the world
Black and yellow, red and white
They’re all precious in His sight
Jesus loves the little children of the world

When we need the leadership of an American President…America has a community organizer, instead.

Until He Comes,

KJ
